Transit Map Tuesday

Transit map tuesday social 01

Did you know that SEPTA is redesigning its rail transit wayfinding system to make it easier to navigate for all types of users?

Everything’s on the table - including maps.

And what better way to start brainstorming than looking at some of the world’s best transit map styles through a SEPTA lens.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be posting fantasy versions of the SEPTA transit map inspired by our peers.

Welcome to #TransitMapTuesday!

Week 2's SEPTA map is inspired by Boston! This map shows the “Jumbo Blue Line” – the Market Frankford Line plus feeders, inspired by the MBTA Red Line/Mattapan Trolley. Also, notice SEPTA’s frequent bus lines in red. This map shows all of SEPTA’s transit lines that meet the 15/15/5 frequency standard. Bravo to Strategic Planning’s intern for a thought-provoking design! What do or don’t you like about this version? Please comment below!

Week 1 [Tuesday, September 15, 2020] is inspired by Transport for London (TfL). TfL is a local government body responsible for the transport system in Greater London, England. TfL has responsibility for London's network of principal road routes, for various rail networks including the London Underground, London Overground, Docklands Light Railway and TfL Rail.
